On the Scene with Grandma Moonpie & Friends

Poor Susannah--not a moment alone this weekend.

She had two people helping her eat squash.

Three people to play with on the floor.

An extra set of hands to capture play time with mommy.

And, in the final hour of Grandma Moonpie's visit, she rolled over! All by herself!! Then she did it again for the camera.

Start on the tummy

Laugh and ready to roll

Ta-da! It helps if you are nekked.

It's no biggie, she tells Judah.

Bye GMP! We'll miss you.

First Foods

Yummy organic brown rice cereal with breast milk! What could be better!

Looking cool in the bib that Rachel made me

This spoon tastes funny

Get that away from me. Seriously.

What the hell are you trying to do to me?

Hey can I get some more of that?

Susannah begins to lose the stink eye

We went to Massachusetts this weekend to see some other babies, but no photos of the trip will be posted until the babies sign the photo-release form.

In other news, perhaps it's the inner southerner coming out, or perhaps she just doesn't like summer. Or maybe we (Beth) are just getting quicker with the camera. But we would like to think that Susannah has begun to smile more often. See below for Susannah's latest mugs.

She is waay into putting things in her mouth - her hand(s) often being the object of convenience.

She thinks dad is HILARIOUS (wonder how long that will last).

S exhibiting a little 'tude.

Thank god she loves her crib.

Anyone familiar with Ben Aplin's childhood knows this face.

More Halloween Pics

Last weekend we had a Halloween warm-up at the Botanic Garden. Little miss mermaid met up with the cutest monkey on the block, aka Benjamin, who lives a few blocks from us and is also a May 28 baby.

Benjamin and Susannah have been spending a lot more time together now that they are sharing the same sitter. (Yes, thanks to Benjamin's mom Genevieve and their great babysitter Dale, we are no longer in nanny crisis.) Benjamin is a really smiley baby--we are hoping that will rub off on Susannah. Unfortunately in these photos it seems that he's adopted her skeptical look.

Halloween night Aunt A-Lo came down and we met up with Benjamin and Genevieve at the Halloween parade in Park Slope. Our little mermaid was not too impressed and fell asleep about halfway through it. Oh well, we gathered some candy in her behalf.

Here's a photo of Genevieve and me dressed up like mommies.

Nightswimming! Yes, those are A-lo's hands, geez.

Aunt A-lo, can we go home now?

1st Halloween: not with a bang but a whimper

There's either not much to report, or we're just to tired from a crazy week to notice anything noteworthy. With some great weather this weekend we hit upHalloween parade in Park Slope and got out into the park today.

Prospect Park on the first day of November

Still perfecting head control, now if she'd just work on the rolling over thing.

She really likes being held up in the air lately.
